    I get high on speed.

    I have never done any illegal drug nor have I smoked pot.

    I always got high on speed, still do. In my younger days I had a 68 galaxy 500 with a built 390, then went to a 76 short bed ford pickup with a built 460, then went to a 80 mustang with a built 351W.

    After those I just started being a spectator. Still go and watch them when I can.

    To me there is no rush like it.

    I like going fast, and I'm friends with a family of racers. Other than them I'm not much into watching. I just love going fast.

    A friend of mine out of Arkansas let me drive his 37 fiat last summer in Tulsa.
    I ran 6.97 at 205mph. I was actually a little scared of it.

    He runs in the 5's at 240-250.

    Definitely. There's something about becoming one with the car and feeling through it, working as one unit zipping and winding down the road.

    So some of those guys reach the finish line. That's boring.

    None - agnostic with strong irreligious tendencies.
    I'm so old I went to the first drag race in the UK, at Santa Pod raceway (in 1966 apparently), and where a few American dragsters came across to entertain us all. No doubt still have some photos but tucked away somewhere. I was into car modding - being an engineer - but pretty low-level stuff and with very crap cars.

    Speed is relative.

    Going 55 in an MG-TD feels really fast.
    Carving high speed GS turns (maybe going 35 or 40), feels really fast. :)
